Pre-Conception and Fertility
Preconception: Naturopathic medicine helps families establish optimal health prior to conception to ensure a healthy pregnancy and baby. Whether you are planning to conceive naturally or are using assisted reproductive technologies, naturopathic care can improve rates of a healthy full term pregnancy by balancing hormones, creating an optimal environment for pregnancy, and improving male factor fertility.
Tracking Fertility: Our Naturopathic team teaches all of our patients how to properly track and understand their fertility signs. Each patient receives a customized plan to address their barriers to healthy conception including stress management, detoxification, dietary modifications and herbal and supplemental therapies to balance hormones and improve fertility. Acupuncture is another valuable tool that improves conception rates by up to 65%.
Common fertility conditions treated: natural family planning, PCOS, IVF/IUI support, egg quality, endometriosis, fibroids, decreased sperm parameters (motility, count and morphology), luteal phase defects, thin lining, recurrent miscarriage, autoimmune conditions and more.
Pregnancy, Birth and Postpartum
Healthy Pregnancy: Naturopathic medicine helps women nourish a healthy pregnancy and baby. Using gentle and safe therapies, common concerns such as heartburn, nausea, leg cramps and fatigue can be effectively managed. With healthy diet and lifestyle guidance, women can reduce the likelihood of complications such as excess weight gain, gestational diabetes, Group B Strep, high blood pressure and pre-eclampsia. Clients also learn which supplements are most effective and what steps to take to reduce rates of familial diseases, autism, allergies and eczema in their newborns.
Birth: Our Naturopathy team help families navigate through decision-making regarding labour, and birth, support clients with strategies such as acupuncture for optimal baby positioning and to bring on labour without induction, and reduce the rate of medical interventions including forceps, vacuum and Cesarean birth.
Postpartum: In the postpartum period, Naturopathic medicine is a powerful tool to speed recovery from Cesarean or vaginal birth and help new families thrive. Naturopathy can assist with increasing energy levels, improving milk supply, feelings of being supported and reduce post-partum depression and anxiety.
Infants and Children
By taking a preventative, wellness-based approach to your child’s care, naturopathy helps families get started on the right foot.

Naturopathic medicine also offers effective strategies to treat common childhood concerns including gas and colic, digestive upset, ear infections, eczema, teething, ADHD, and more.
